Haven Blog Conference Recap and Duluth Trading Company Giveaway!

Thursday , 15, August 2013 5 Comments

I”ve just spent two weekends at blog, writing, and marketing conferences, gathering ideas and making connections for our SOON TO LAUNCH NEW WEBSITE “Coweta Fayette Families!” We are making big plans for an even more awesome website, with opportunities for meet-ups, exciting new content, and “giveaway goodies for YOU, our “Georgia Moms In The Know For Families On The Go!”

The Haven Conference in the Buckhead area of Atlanta was awesome! Here”s the view from the elevators near my room.


The attendees were a fun, creative, intelligent, DANCING group of women. We had our own Haven Shuffle Line Dance. choreographed by Traci of Beneath My Heart. Steps to this dance are: drive to Home Depot to get your supplies, sand it, build it, paint it, blog about it, pin it (on Pinterest), Facebook it, tweet it on Twitter. After you finish reading about the giveaway at the end of the blogpost, Click Here for the video: turn up YouTube and try it!

Haven”s keynote speakers and workshop leaders were nationally known bloggers who are passionate about blogging, do-it-yourself projects and creating beautiful homes for your family on a budget. Many of you may know featured blogger, Ana White, Alaskan Mom, Homemaker, and Furniture Designer/Builder. Ana has hundreds of free furniture plans on her website. You will be amazed!

When you have a quiet moment, bookmark this post, then browse some of the bloggers whom I had the opportunity to meet and enjoy online casino at Haven! Here”s a list of the Haven Conference Founders and their Blogs as well as the Haven Conference speakers and their blogs. One of my favorites is my blog friend, Rhoda Vicker”s Southern Hospitality.

Our conference “Swag Bags” were filled with amazing products from Haven Conference Sponsors including Home Depot, Rust-oleum, Shaw Floors (Awesome flooring of all kinds; made in the USA; voted #1 by retailers in Quality, Service and Style!), Ryobi Tools, Frog Tape, and more. There was also a ballroom filled with booths representing all kinds of products and services. Coweta Fayette Families will be partnering with some of the Haven Sponsors to bring new product giveaways to our blog. We want to make sure you stay “In The Know” about all the latest news and trends. Click HERE to check out the list of Haven”s sponsors” links, to see what”s new!

One of my FAVORITE gifts was Duluth Trading Company”s Short Sleeve Longtail Henley. For someone who is long-waisted, the 2 extra inches in the hem ensures my shirt doesn”t ride up in the back! The knit is so soft you”ll be amazed, yet it isn”t too clingy. The short sleeve henley also has BUILT IN 35 UPF PROTECTION FROM THE SUN! (Side note: I splashed spaghetti sauce on my WHITE shirt, in several places, tonight while cooking supper. A little liquid dish soap removed all traces immediately, without the shirt pilling up or stretching from the gentle rubbing. My photo below shows that you can “dress up” your Henley! I threw on a vest and necklace today, and wore mine to run errands!)

Right now, you can buy two Duluth Trading Company Henley”s and save! I”ve enjoyed my white henley so much, I”m ordering two more, in poppy and aquamarine! Here”s their no-nonsense guarantee: “If you’re not 100% satisfied with any item you purchase from Duluth Trading, return it to us at any time for an exchange or refund of its purchase price. Simple, unconditional, no nonsense, NO BULL.”
